It’s Been Far Too Long - Poem by Prathibha Nandakumar

It’s been far too long
to go back now to the
beginning of the journey

lest we miss each other and
start the search all over again.

I wanted a bonsai
but got a full fledged tree
in bloom. Unexpected
but then everything has been so,
so far.

Its for you to edit
I write according to
What my pen tells me to.

Talking of pens
isn’t it far too long
since I first mentioned about

the old ink pot wanting some refills?
